POCATELLO - Recent history pointed to a tough game for the Snake River Panthers as they prepared to take on the Bear Lake Bears Thursday night in an elimination game of the District 5 3A tournament. After all, Bear Lake had dominated the Panthers and the other teams in the fifth district all season, but that is why they play the games this time of year.
RIGBY â€” The Shelley Russets inaugural season in the 4A High Country Conference came to an end on Thursday night as the Rigby Trojans raced past the Russets for a 78-58 victory.
"We started the game well but even then you just didn't sense that spirit which is understandable because of the heartbreaker that we suffered on Tuesday," Shelley head coach Dave Hadley said. "We just didn't realize the urgency and once Rigby got a little lead they were able to get real aggressive and then you could just sense us tensing up."
